Monopoly turns 80 this year, so Hasbro is putting out a new version this fall where all the property spaces are American cities. They've done it before, but everything is being updated.
They also let people vote which cities should be on the board, and the one with the most votes got to take Boardwalk's place as the most valuable spot. After four million votes were counted, the big winner is . . . Pierre, South Dakota.
It seems like the people of Pierre banded together to beat the system, and Pierre is a nice place . . . we're just not sure it's the most expensive, glamorous, city in America.
Minneapolis is taking Park Place's spot as the second-most valuable spot on the board.
Here are all the cities, and their colors, from most expensive to least. Dark blue: Pierre, South Dakota and Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Green: New York . . . Virginia Beach . . . and Los Angeles.
Yellow: Chicago . . . Indianapolis . . . and Charleston, South Carolina.
Red: Detroit . . . Boston . . . and Milwaukee.
Orange: Cleveland . . . Asheville, North Carolina . . . and Denver.
Magenta: Atlanta . . . Little Rock . . . and Seattle.
Light blue: Portsmouth, New Hampshire . . . Charlotte . . . and Dallas.
Brown: Waconia, Minnesota (???) and Chesapeake, Virginia.
